Michigan Monday: Welcomes Denzel Ward

During the close call on Saturday a commit from 2014 prospect Denzel Ward, went a bit overlooked.  He is what you would call a high ceiling type of player.  This year is his first year playing football but as a junior is 6'9 285 pounds.   With some good coaching and that foundation he could be a very good football player say by his redshirt sophomore year.   His only other offer was from Purdue but had been getting a lot of attention from the likes of Iowa, MSU, Illinois, Wisconsin and USC.   He is not rated by any service at this point. 

Denzel is friends with LTT as Michigan picks up another recruit from Chicago, Illinois. 

  • OSU offered Gareon Conley this weekend.

  • Michigan is ranked #20 in both the Coaches and AP polls. #22 in the BCS

  • Denard showed up on kick return against MSU - In other news, expect him to play DB and sell programs at halftime at the Big House.

  • Michigan right now is a 3pt dog against Nebraska on Saturday night.

  • Stadium Journey puts up reviews of stadiums across the world.  The review of the Big House is up. 

State of the Big Ten

  • Has Wisconsin already clinched the Leaders division?  There are 4 teams that can qualify for the Big Ten Championship game, Wisconsin is 3-0 and the 3 others are 0-3.   OSU and PSU are 4-0 and 3-0 but can't make the championship game.

  • When will OSU drop a game?  OT against Purdue in Columbus?  That is not a good sign.  They are still un-defeated.

  • Penn State is getting better.  The way they destroyed Iowa was impressive.  Still not sure that either team is very good.

  • The race for the Legends division has Michigan in the drivers seat at 3-0.   MSU and Minnesota are out.  Northwestern is on the ropes and Iowa/Nebraska are hanging in there with 1 loss.   Nebraska can tie for first place if they can beat the Wolverines in Lincoln this weekend.

  • Michigan State now has to go on the road and play Wisconsin at Camp Randall.  Yikes, that is a difficult schedule.
